An Overview of Canadian Arctic Inuit Art By Clint Leung
eBook (PDF): $4.99

Like many Canadians, I wasn’t really exposed to Inuit art from our Arctic north until wandering through some of the tourist areas of cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Ottawa. Even... More > though Inuit art has been marketed to the Canadian ‘south’ since the 1950s, it doesn’t get much mainstream publicity here. Most Canadians have never seen Inuit art in person. The more I saw Inuit art during my business trips around the country, the more I became intrigued with them, especially with the sculptures. Each piece of Inuit sculpture had a museum-like quality to it perhaps because of the relative exoticness of Inuit art. The carvings looked very much like they came from another land even though the Arctic is part of Canada.< Less

By Canadian Streams By Lawrence J. Burpee

By Canadian Streams (1909) by Lawrence J. Burpee. The world offers no parallel to this extraordinary water-road from the Atlantic to the Pacific; nor is the tale all told. From that great central... More > reservoir, that master-key to the whole system of water communications, the traveller might turn his canoe in any direction, and traverse the length and breadth of the continent to its most remote boundaries: east to the Atlantic, west to the Pacific, north to the Arctic or to Hudson Bay, and south to the Gulf of Mexico. The story of Canadian rivers would fill several volumes if one attempted to do justice to such a broad and varied theme. One may only hope, in the few pages that follow, to give glimpses of the story; to suggest, however inadequately, the dramatic and romantic possibilities of the subject; to recall a few of the memories that cling to the rivers of Canada. Who that has travelled upon their far-spreading waters has not felt the compelling charm of the rivers of Canada?< Less

In 2012, Nunavut Arctic College received funding from Canadian Heritage, through the Aboriginal Languages Initiative, to reprint this dictionary.
